Keep it Dry. The drying of aggregates is a critical step in obtaining moisture-free hot-mix asphalt, but requires much energy. Significant reduction of the moisture content can be gained by keeping the materials our of the rain in the first place, so BA Blacktop—part of the Eurovia Vinci
Group— engaged BuildWorks to erect a simple MegaDome® fabric-covered roof over the aggregate piles. Rain is out, and the free-flow of air across the aggregates from the open front and rear even further reduces moisture. A win-win solution.
